London fintech company set to create 40 new jobs in Tampa

A London-based company with a strong Tampa presence is ready to further grow its Sunshine State roots.

TransferWise, an international tech-enabled money transferring company, announced Wednesday it is looking to fill 750 roles globally, with 40 of those being based in Tampa.

“We’re already improving international banking for people and businesses, but this is just the very beginning,” Kristo Kaarmaan, founder and CEO of TransferWise, said in a statement. “We need a lot of help beyond our current team to achieve our mission of money without borders.”

The company currently has 2,200 employees across 14 global offices, servicing 9 million customers. In 2016, it was reported the company hit the famed unicorn club, or private companies that are worth over $1 billion. In 2015, it opened its Tampa office, and in 2018 it transferred offices to a historic cigar factory in Ybor City, where it remains today.

A TransferWise spokeswoman told Tampa Bay Inno the roles will be primarily operational, such as customer support, verification and payment operations. The postings and hirings will span through Q1 and Q2. She also noted even if one role is posted on the website, multiple hirings can happen for that one role.
